Cain hits the lead, Zogby.

Polls are fairly ‘fluid’ at present, requiring some discretion in our acceptance of the results of each individually.

The latest IBOPE Zogby poll has certainly tossed the cat among the pigeons though, with Herman Cain making a giant leap from 12% to 28% for the lead, well ahead of Rick Perry who has plummeted to 18%. Perry had a disastrous performance in the latest debate, which had an immediate effect on his numbers. Cain on the other hand shone and presented a real alternative to the business as usual candidates.

UTICA, NY--Rick Perry has tumbled by more than 20 percentage points over the past month among Republican presidential primary voters and is now second to Herman Cain, who leads the field with 28%.

Mitt Romney received little benefit from Perrys fall, garnering 17% of the vote for third place.

This poll was conducted after Perry's most recent subpar debate performance last Thursday, but the survey was still in the field when Cain won a Florida straw poll on Sunday. Cain was the top choice of only 8% a month ago.

Michele Bachmann continues her drop in our polling, falling from a first-place 34% on June 30 to just 4% now. While some other announced GOP candidates have had large fluctuations in their standing with party voters, since June 21 Romney has remained steadily between 12% and 17%.
It has to be noted that the numbers polled is not given, nor a margin of error. A 10 point lead though would be well outside the margin.

Update: Prominent radio and TV host Dennis Miler has endorsed Cain.


  1. The most exciting thing about a Herman Cain presidency is that it would do far more good to American race relations particularly between African and Anglo Americans than a liberal idealogue like Obama would ever hope to achieve.

    Once people start to see all these people that are always thought of as merely rich, racist, white hicks voting for a black man they'll finally wake up.

  2. It is one positive. I feel that one of the best is that if elected, common sense policies will improve the lot of all Americans, including black ones and that will have a positive effect far into the future.

    During 98, one of the matters I raised was my concern that if the 'first black President', turned out to be a failure, it might preclude black people from seeking high office for a long time. The first part of this has come to pass and hopefully, Cain can prevent the second part being the case.
